RE:[sap-log-sd] Customer Hierarchy and Partner Function

Reply from adrianolopez on Feb 8 at 6:44 PM
What I did in past was created a hierarchy nodes in customer account group 0012 (hierarchy node) and lower level customer in account group 0001 (Sold-to). Then I assigned lower level customer created in 0001 account group to the one created in 0012 through T-code VDH1N. VDH1N established parent child relationship. This assignment resolved my reporting requirement.
In your case, it looks like you are assigning multiple children to a parent.

In standard config, I could not find 1A-1D partner functions available at customer master partner determination. I assigned 1A to the procedure and also assigned 1A partner function (1A = parent level partner from 0012 account group) to the child customer. But 1A function is not flowing to the sales order.

So, partners need to be determined at sales order level automatically.

Let's wait other experts suggestion.

Subject: Customer Hierarchy and Partner Function

Dear SAP Gurus,

I known many people have asked this question before. But there weren't any replies for this question. Hence want to ask once again.

I have maintained customer hierarchy 1A in IMG and created customer hierarchy master data in SAP ECC. Also maintained the hierarchy through VDH1N

The problem is when I create an order, the hierarchy data is not copied into the sales order. I tried to manually assign 1A hierarchy and the customer into the customer function view, an error message appears as following:

" Partner from function customer hierarchy 1 can not be processed online."

Can anyone advise me on how to maintain the partner determination? Also do I need to maintain the partner functions 1A or 1B on customer master.

Thank you very much.
